“A good trail that offers some of the best 360-degree views in the Breckenridge area.”— Mirek Wierzbicki
After two miles, make a left onto Baldy Road (County Road 520). Soon you'll arrive at the Bald Mountain Trailhead winter parking lot. I started my hike from here hiking on the mountain dirt road for a half mile up to and past the 4WD lot.
At 1.4 miles, look for the Iowa Mill, built in 1935. At 1.6 miles, there is a great view of Breckenridge Ski Area. At 3.55 miles, the trail narrows, continuing along the mountain ridge. At ~5.3 miles, I was on the rocky and exposed summit of Bald Mt. with views of Mt. Guyot and the neighboring peaks.
When you've had your fill, head back the way you came.
